Waterville Fisheries Report Aug 3rd – 10th

10/8/2022 The suntan lotions were the catch as the sun blasted down on SW Kerry as you can see by the photo of Ballinskelligs Bay courtesy of   Wind WSW light and veered NNW this evening. 

9/8/2022 The heat wave takes all headlines so on that note we head out into Ballinskelligs Bay with Mr. Robert Elson of  for his Catch of the day, two ready cooked Lobsters, all I can say is bon appétit. Wind SE Veered SW light and variable.

8/8/2022 More than a 100 years of Hotel Management At The Butler Arms Hotel, Waterville officially comes to an end today and it’s a very sad day in my opinion, especially when the curtain comes down on more than 100 years of providing a great service by the Huggard Family to tourists from all over the world, from the President of Ireland to Charlie Chaplin and the not so famous. So, on behalf of the Currane Anglers, all the good people of Waterville and from all over the Globe we wish Mrs. Mary Huggard and her family all the best for the future.

Now today’s Manipulations all quiet on all fronts need I say more. Wind NNW light and variable followed by bright sunshine all day.

7/8/2022 The Currane suntan anglers were all quiet in all departments as you can see why by the Rod Stuart photo. WNW light and variable followed by bright sunshine all day.

6/8/2022 The Currane and Inny anglers were all quiet in all departments this day? Just for the record there was one C&R Inny angler manipulating his skills and was up there for a good while, fair play to him, on that note did he or didn’t he is the question? Wind East veered W and veered again into WNW light followed by bright sunshine.

5/8/2022 All quiet on the Inny, mind you I say that with a stutter, so on that note we head down to the World-Famous Butler Pool and at where there was a nice bit of action with two Salmon caught on the fly. Wind NNW light, followed by the odd shower this morning followed by reasonable cloud cover.

4/8/2022 We start on the Commeragh where there was one Cork angler manipulating his Skills, sadly I can’t confirm whether he caught one but all I do know he walked off the Commeragh and headed for the C&R River Inny, so I take it his lines were slack on the Commeragh? Talking of the Inny I can confirm that there was 5 Salmon caught by other Inny C&R anglers. On Lough Currane it was all quiet on all fronts. Wind light North and veered NNW in the afternoon with reasonable cloud cover.

3/8/2022 All the Salmon headlines come from the C&R River Inny with 7 Salmon reported caught. Just for the record the total amount of rainfall that the Waterville Fishery got over the August Bank Holiday was a grand total of 26.1 mm. Wind light WNW followed good cloud cover.
